18 and 19 {Almost 20} Months

I haven't done the best job with keeping up with Ellington's monthly updates, but I at least remembered to take pictures!  Ellington, you have changed SO MUCH recently.  Your Daddy and I talk constantly now about how much you are changing....and becoming a little girl instead of a baby!  We definitely want you to grow up, but we are a little sad too!  We love you so much and it is a joy to watch you discover the world around you!

We had to cut the photo session short.  It appears someone had an important call:

Ellington, what are you up to at 19 months?
  • You are wearing mostly 24 month clothes and some 2T because that's the size I bought so that you could wear them allllll summer (and in Mississippi summer lasts through September!).  Some of the outfits are way too big on you though.
  • You weigh about 25 pounds
  • You sleep about 12 hours a night and take one afternoon nap.
  • You can say ANY word you want and you repeat most of what we say.
  • You are speaking in a lot of two word phrases.  Ex: Daddy's shoes  
  • In the last week you have started using a sentence every now and then.  Your first sentence was, "I want to see Pop". 
  • You don't want even the smallest speck of food (or anything really) on your hands.  You pretty much freak out until your hands are clean.
  • You are distinguishing noise (Ex: hair dryer, airplane, lawn mower, etc.)
  • You have recently had your first non-family member babysitter while you were awake. You survived...and so did your Daddy and I!
  • You think we are going somewhere the second we put on your shoes and you run to the door.
  • You still love to read and are finally sitting through a whole (short) story.
  • You LOVE going to the park.  The whole way there you say, "slide, swing" over and over
  • You can climb on and off the chair in your room now (the one we take monthly pictures in)
  • You do a fantastic job using a spoon
  • You love naming all of the people in our family
  • You love to give Mommy and Daddy kisses (We love it too!)
  • You LOVE LOVE LOVE animals
  • You have a new obsession with motorcycles.  You call them "bikes" and squeal with delight when you see one.
  • You are not a big fan of riding in your car seat right now.  Going anywhere (even just to the store) can be quite taxing on Mama's nerves!
Ellington, you really are just as sweet as pie.  We couldn't imagine a better little girl in the whole wide world. :)  We love you!
